cncKad supports advanced technologies, compatible with your cutting machine. Advanced cutting technologies enable the full use of machine capabilities.
Adding processing for this type of part can take a long time due to compensation calculations. Sometimes, very small contours are not processed at all because the lead-in size is bigger than the contour size.
cncKad offers two options for processing such parts:
- Process the part with no compensation calculations
- Apply a minimal lead-in size
The CatEye (known also as OVS for Amada machines) is an electronic sensor on the machine that measures the sheet placement on the machine table, even when the sheet is not aligned with the pins. This is useful when you use two machines to process a part:
- A punching machine for standard holes
- A cutting machine to cut non-standard holes and the outer contours
When you select one of these options for your part, the sensor on the machine measures the holes/corners and calculates how to cut the sheet.
Using cncKad‘s extensive and powerful CAD commands, quickly and easily design components, or edit imported projects from customer systems.
